Own production of milk and cheese typical of Puglia
Masseria Colombo is a farm / livestock farm of about 500 hectares.
The main activity is the breeding of Podolica bovines.
Masseria Colombo, in fact, has over 200 podolica cows in selection that graze on farm land. Also in breeding high genealogy bulls are used.
The breeding type is that of the cow-calf line.
In fact, after weaning the calves at around 8 months of age, they are fattened in a modern stable and then about 18 months started to slaughter. The meat of our vitellons is of exceptional quality: it is difficult to forget the taste and tenderness after enjoying them!
At Masseria Colombo there is also the mechanical milking of the mares in a modern and functional milking room; The quantities of milk produced by the podolica are extremely low, but the characteristics of podolica milk are unique: the podol milk perfume, in fact, is absolutely exclusive because it is conditioned by the various types of grazing that alternate during the year.
This means that the products obtained from the transformation of our podolica milk have a variability of taste related to the seasonal trends. For the transformation of the milk into the farm, a modern dairy has been produced, meeting all the hygienic-sanitary requirements required, which produce podolica caciocavallo, mozzarella, braids, ricotta.
In conclusion Masseria Colombo breeds podolica cows while preserving the breeding traditions but observing the animal health and welfare rules that progress rightly demands.
